Asiatic Static Bpw

This packaged deal could be an economical way to try an Asiatic static tip bow without blowing the bank account.
I think the limbs may be solid glass.

Yes I think you may be right about the limbs. Tends to be a straight uniform section of fibreglass. Easy to produce this way.

I have shot a few of these style bows, but tended to find they stacked near full draw. I also found them 'clunky' at release, probably from the momentum of the static tips.

But having said that, perhaps that is just me or those particular bows I tried, or maybe it is too be expected? I just don't know. I'd be curious as to others experiences with this style of bow.
